PLANS to build a new apartment block and bus shelter for one of the Island’s ‘busiest bus stops’ have been lodged.

If approved, the existing two-bedroom house on Route de la Haule would be demolished and replaced by a one-bedroom flat and two sets of two-bedroom flats.

Applicant Brigham Young also plans to build a shelter to cover the bus stop in front of the site.

In a statement supporting the application, St Peter Constable Richard Vibert said that the bus shelter had been requested by parishioners numerous times over the past 20 years.

He wrote: ‘We now have the opportunity, as part of the proposed development, for the shelter to be constructed – something that has not only my support but that of many parishioners.’

Two years ago, Mr Young bought the two-bedroom house with the aim of redeveloping the site and providing the parish with a bus shelter.

In a statement, planning agent Godel Architects wrote that the Mr Young ‘had made it his mission’ to secure land to provide a bus shelter.

They added: ‘This is one of the busiest bus stops for passengers heading into St Helier.

‘The applicant purchased the property with the intention of facilitating the provision of a new bus shelter, and the land it sits upon, while redeveloping the site to provide three residential units.’

If approved, the new bus shelter would have a curved zinc roof and a timber bench.

According to Godel Architects, the design would be reminiscent of historic railway carriages, in reference to the former railway line that ran along St Aubin’s Bay promenade.
